Danish Police Shoot Ax Wielding Somali Muslim on Cartoon Jihad

COPENHAGEN — Police shot a Somali man wielding an ax and a knife as he tried to break into the home of an artist whose cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad with a bomb-shaped turban outraged the Muslim world, the head of Denmark's intelligence agency said Saturday.

Scharf said without elaborating that the man is suspected of having been involved in terror-related activities in east Africa. He had been under PET's surveillance but not in connection with Westergaard, he said
The man, who had a permit to stay in Denmark, was to be charged Saturday with attempted murder for trying to kill Westergaard and the police officer, Scharf said.
It was unclear whether the suspect actually managed to get inside the home of the 75-year-old cartoonist in Denmark's second largest city, 125 miles (200 kilometers) northwest of Copenhagen.
Westergaard could not be reached for comment. However, he told his employer, the Jyllands-Posten daily, that the assailant shouted "revenge" and "blood" as he tried to enter the bathroom where Westergaard and the child had sought shelter.

Yet another example of "The Religion of Peace" in action. Happy New Year.

Reminds me of the old stereotype (now out of bounds because of PC censorship) of the sword or ax-wielding Muslim of the Bugs Bunny cartoons.

Seems that the old stereotype wasn't that far off the mark...
